The Vacuum is a creative studio made up of thinkers, designers, directors and developers. Our skills include creative strategy, branding, print and web design, web development, interactive design, live action directing, cinematography, editing, motion graphics, animation and 3D. Whatever the medium, our objective is to effectively help our clients achieve their goals.

We take our work very seriously, and ourselves lightly.

We’re fortunate to work with a broad suite of clients, from heavy-hitting brands like Nike and Fitbit, to outdoor industry leaders like Arc’teryx, to a wide variety of scrappy, creative startups. Regardless of the size of the brand, we’re proud to create cool work that makes our clients happy, engages their customers and delivers real results.
We’re a friendly bunch of people that are real nice to work with. We’re headquartered in the outdoor adventure hub of Squamish BC, located in the stunning Sea to Sky Corridor between the bustling metropolis of Vancouver and the resort town of Whistler. Just minutes from our studio is world-class skiing, snowboarding, climbing, mountain biking, hiking, and more. It’s in this outdoor sports Shangri-la we can work hard, yet still escape into the wild places, and that is why we’ve all come here to play for the Vacuum team.
"Vacuum presented us a tight, integrated seasonal strategy that, frankly, blew us away in its scope, covering not only what we expected, but enlightened us on new ways to reach the consumer. It was inspiring to be shown not just creative messaging, but also how to creatively deliver that message in ways that we would never have thought of. Vacuum knows how to think!"

Tom Duguid, Creative Director, Arc'teryx

"I had the pleasure of working with The Vacuum on a number of projects over a couple of years and was blown away every time. No matter how much chaos we threw at them, they came up with simple, intuitive and powerful results. Working with them felt more like being on the same team than working with an agency. Not only are they talented at what they do, they're wonderful people who you'll genuinely enjoy working with."

Katherine Arnett, Brand Marketing Manager, Fitbit

"Vacuum has quickly become a valuable addition to our team. They have brought strong creative vision, flawless execution, and detail oriented relationship management into our world and we couldn't be happier with their work."

Rob Webb, COO, Liftopia

"Vacuum asks you the right questions to understand your business concept then transforms that information into the exact story, the exact image, the exact message you were searching for."
